J S Bach Brandenburg Concerto No. 3
J S Bach Concerto for Two Violins
Vivaldi The Four Seasons
Pieter Schoeman Violin
Andrew Storey Violin
London Philharmonic Orchestra
When Vivaldi wrote his Four Seasons he knew he’d created something special. But even he might have been surprised if he’d known just how popular his four wonderfully colourful concertos would remain, nearly 300 years later. From the verdant melodies of Spring to the torrential winter storms with which they close, The Four Seasons continue to charm, delight, and entertain. Paired with music by Vivaldi’s greatest German fan J S Bach, with LPO leader Pieter Schoeman and Principal Second Violin Andrew Story as soloists, this should be an evening of really joyous music-making.
Enchantment and Romance
R Strauss Sextet from Capriccio
Mozart Clarinet Quintet
Soloists of the London Philharmonic Orchestra
When string players want to unwind, they gather together some friends and play Mendelssohn’s Octet: 35 minutes of enchantment, romance and youthful exuberance from the pen of a 16-year-old genius with his imagination on fire. As much fun to play as it is to listen to, it’s one of those pieces that leaves everyone smiling – as does Mozart’s gorgeous Clarinet Quintet. Elegant, playful and tender by turns, it’s like dark chocolate for the ears. First, though, savour the lush prelude to Richard Strauss’s final opera: six players have never sounded so sensuous.
